Best advice from makeup artists on how to fix the top 7 makeup errors

Most of us have been wearing makeup since we were teenagers, but do we expect the same habits to still work for us? Here you´ll find age-appropriate healthy routines to fix your errors.

1. 1. Never forget to prep your skin

Never apply makeup before cleansing, toning and moisturizing.

Never apply makeup before cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. Many people apply foundation directly to the skin, and this will result in the foundation looking patchy. If you want a flawless makeup look, you have to prep your skin.

2. 2. Using the same foundation you wore when you were 15

Powder drugstore foundations might have worked when you were young and your young skin didn’t need the extra hydration.

Powder drugstore foundations might have worked when you were young and your young skin didn’t need the extra hydration. With age, the skin on your face and neck gets dry, a creamy foundation applied with a wet makeup sponge or brush will help boost radiance.

3. 3. Applying makeup in a poorly lighted room

Apply makeup in natural light.

Whenever possible, use natural light, this will provide the most accurate reflection of your face. If this is not an option, choose a warm white LED light.

4. 4. Overusing concealer

Overusing concealer will surely result in highlighted wrinkles.

Overusing concealer will surely result in highlighted wrinkles or a panda bear look -yes, we’ve all been there-; it is better to choose fluid foundations and concealers for luminous natural skin.

5. 5. Overlooking your lips

Exfoliate your lips once a week.

It is paramount to exfoliate your lips once a week, you can use sugar or oatmeal to naturally exfoliate. Only then apply lipstick, gloss, and a lip liner to create a fuller appearance and younger lips. Colors close to your natural lip color will flatter your skin.

6. 6. Forgetting blush and bronzer

Stay away from bright shimmery shades: A natural rosy color will instantly make you look younger, apply blush where your cheeks would normally flush.

Apply bronzer only to the places where the sun naturally hits your skin: tops of your cheekbones, around your hairline and jawline.

7. 7. Wearing too much mascara on bottom lashes

A heavy application will highlight the wrinkles around your eyes. Gently add one coat of mascara to your bottom lashes.
